The intestinal cleansing procedure is a process during which it is possible to rid the body of such harmful substances as toxins, fecal masses, radionuclides, slags and heavy metal salts..
The need for this procedure may arise for various reasons, among which you can list the following:
- Weight loss;
- Preparation for therapeutic fasting;
- Preparing for a diet;
- Preparation for surgery;
- Colonoscopy (examination by the doctor of the patient’s intestine and analysis of his condition).
The most effective means of cleansing the bowel is an enema. However, such a cleaning process is rather unpleasant, and brings discomfort to the patient..
Therefore, to replace the enema pharmacologists have developed potent drugs, the action of which is aimed at the active elimination of toxins from the body. Fortrans is a medical tool that allows you to perform this procedure..
The drug is available in the form of white powder, which is easy to dissolve. Fortrans is quite difficult to find in pharmacies of the city, because it is easier to buy on the Internet.
The average price of the drug – from 500 to 600 rubles for 256 g. You can buy Fortrans only by prescription from a doctor.
Indications for use Fortrans
There are three main indications for using Fortrans:
- Bowel cleansing;
It should be noted that Fortrans is rarely used as a drug for weight loss. Nutritionists do not advise their clients to resort to this method due to the fact that the main principle of the effect of the agent is laxative, which means it can cause significant damage to health..
Most often, Fortrans is used in cases when it is necessary to quickly clean the intestines, or to prepare for a colonoscopy session..
To achieve these goals, the doctor prescribes the drug to the patient, and also introduces him in detail to the instructions for use and the required dosage..
The composition of the drug
The effectiveness of the medical product is obliged to the unique composition. The package, the volume of content is 64 g, contains the following elements:
- Macrogol 4000 – 64 g;
- Sodium chloride – 1.46 g;
- Sodium saccharinate – 0.1 g;
- Sodium bicarbonate – 1.68 g;
- Potassium chloride – 0.75 g;
- Anhydrous sodium sulfate – 5.7 g.
At the heart of the drug is a substance macrogol 4000, while the remaining elements are auxiliary. It is macrogol 4000 that exerts an osmotic effect on the intestine, during which the stool mass is diluted..
Often, to cleanse the intestines, people prefer to use macrogol 4000 in its pure form. The differences between macrogol and FORTRANS are practically absent in this case, except that the latter includes auxiliary substances..
Fortrans, along with any medication, has a number of warnings. Do not take the drug in the following cases:
- Minor age (there are exceptions when the doctor prescribes a remedy from 15 years);
- Heart diseases;
- Violations of the digestive tract (gastrointestinal tract);
- Dehydration (dehydration);
- Allergic reactions to the individual components of the drug;
- Intestinal obstruction (full or partial).
The use of this laxative can lead to unpleasant consequences, among which are the following:
- Intestinal atony resulting from addiction to the drug. In this case, the body is not able to get rid of the feces without the use of laxatives;
- The failure of the body to absorb vitamins and minerals, during which the patient may experience a weak physical condition, brittle nails and hair, periodontal disease (bleeding gums), etc .;
- Failure to assimilate heavy foods by the body due to intestinal damage;
- Abdominal distention;
- Flatulence (enhanced gas formation);
- Disruption of metabolism (metabolism).
In the process of taking Fortrans not to observe these side effects, you should use it only as directed by your doctor at the recommended doses. If even in this case, the body reacts negatively, it is worth stopping the use of this laxative.
Instructions for use Fortrans
Before you begin to take this tool, you must prepare the body:
- The day before the start of the course it is important to use only those products that are easily digested and absorbed by the intestines. For example, porridge;
- On the day of the beginning of the course you should eat porridge for breakfast, and use tea only during the day;
- On this day, as well as subsequent ones, it is important not to subject your body to physical and mental stress..
For cleaning the intestines from harmful substances should take Fortrans according to the following recipe:
- Use the solution at the rate of 1 l per 20 kg of the body;
- Dissolve the corresponding amount of powder in water in a 1: 1 ratio;
- Drink portions for 4 hours.
When using the product for weight loss, nutritionists advise you to prepare a solution according to the above recipe, but drink one half of the drink in the morning and the second in the evening.
Before a colonoscopy, the doctor must inform the patient about the preparation for the procedure, giving him a detailed nutritional plan. As a rule, they begin to prepare for it in three days..
12 hours before the procedure, you should stop eating and start using Fortrans according to the above recipe..
You can drink the prepared drink for 12 hours. Allowed to drink at the same time homemade juice, green tea, water.
The use of the drug to patients is often given with difficulty. Not everyone is able to transfer the taste of the product, as well as drink the prescribed amount of solution in a short time..
In the process of use, many celebrate the gagging urge. However, the drink does cope with the task..
From this it follows that taking medicine is possible only as prescribed by a doctor. Therefore, it is important to consult with a professional before use..
Doctors, as well as Fortran-treated buyers, express both positive and negative opinions about the remedy:
I had only a positive impression about this drug. Many of the patients do not wish to undergo preparation for operations in this way, but I am confident in the effectiveness of Fortrans. I can only object to those who are trying to prescribe self-medication with a means and achieve weight loss with it. Otherwise, if you follow the instructions and recommended doses, the course of use will take place without any inconvenience..
I can join the ranks of those who are glad to be treated with Fortrans. The doctor prescribed this drug for me before the colonoscopy, and as a result I even managed to lose 4 kg. Initially, I was preparing for the procedure, because three days before it I was forced to eat very poorly. Then the intestinal lavage with the preparation began. Yes, the sensations of use are extremely unpleasant, but they are worth it. I have not experienced any discomfort and pain during its action. The intestine was cleaned to such an extent that by the end of the day it released only water (probably the drug itself). I was very pleased, especially the effect of losing weight.

I can not recommend this tool to use. In my opinion, cleansing with an enema would be much more pleasant for me. But I had nothing to do when the doctor prescribed this particular drug before a colonoscopy. The terrible taste sensations, as well as the subsequent discomfort, almost made me quit at the last moment. Throughout the day was observed loose stools, as well as gagging. Yes, FORTRANCE coped with the task, but in my case the goal does not justify testing.

- In terms of effectiveness, the remedy is not inferior to enema;
- Fortrans is available by prescription only;
- Used for colon cleansing, slimming and colonoscopic preparation;
- Has a number of contraindications and side effects..
